PSA is a nonprofit founded by former US representative Lee Hamilton and the late US Senator Warren Rudman to advance bipartisanship on today’s national security and foreign policy challenges. Leveraging the leadership of its distinguished Advisory Board, PSA has unique credibility and access to forge common ground and fashion thoughtful, fact-based policy that promotes America’s national interests. PSA works on a broad range of key policy issues such as nuclear nonproliferation, Middle East policy, energy security, international organizations, and more. PSA works heavily with Capitol Hill offices, the executive branch, and the NGO community.

The Jeffrey A. McLean Foundation provides economically challenged college students the means to participate in internships and the opportunity to advance their careers. The foundation works with state and community colleges, small businesses, and non-profit organizations to build college-to-business partnerships to help ensure that all college students, regardless of circumstance, have an opportunity to succeed.
